Man to serve jail term for threatening his mom with baseball bat.


By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART – A 31-year-old Whitehall man pleaded ‘no contest’ to felonious assault and resisting arrest Monday, May 20, in 27th Circuit Court.

Charles Lee England, of 817 Livingston St., threatened his 69-year-old mother with a baseball bat and then resisted arrest by a Michigan State Police trooper, April 12, in Claybanks Township, according to Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

In exchange for his plea, England faces serving up to one year in jail, the prosecutor said.

England’s mother was not injured nor was the state trooper, he said. Information regarding England’s injury as shown in his mugshot was not available.

The maximum penalty for assault with a dangerous weapon is four years in prison and assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer is two years.

England is lodged in the Oceana County Jail on a $10,000/cash/surety/10 percent bond.

Sentencing is set for July 29 at 9 a.m.
